X2: The Threat
The RADEON X800 XT seems to be winning in this test, while the RADEON X800 Pro is slightly slower than the GeForce 6800 GT. The GeForce 6800 does well in the low resolution against the competing RADEON 9800 XT, but its lack of fast memory negates its results in the higher resolutions.
As for the graphics cards of the previous generation, the GeForce FX series feels overall better in this game than the RADEON 9800 line due to more effective work with shadows. The GeForce FX 5700 Ultra outperforms the RADEON 9600 XT.
The situation hardly changes in the “eye candy” mode, only the GeForce 6800 Ultra is now better than the RADEON X800 XT in low resolutions.
